Everyone knows Im a fan of all shades of blue, I love the ocean it inspires me everyday, always.

Styling your home should be fun and not complicated – be confident in your own style and make your place great!

With the change of seasons (winter is coming) it’s the perfect time to update your bedroom, make it calm and cosy (always) nothing too difficult just a fresh set of sheets and a new quilt cover ( I selected the Hewett in denim ) and a brand new art work ( I selected Lorette Framed Canvas ) is all it takes for an easy update.

Sweet dreams in a serene bedroom with ocean inspired hues…

Bedroom styling for King Living

Recently I created four different bedrooms looks for King Living with bedlinen by In The Sac to showcase the King Living bed collection and to show how these beds can work in any style of home.

We created these four looks in the King Living studio in Sydney with photographer Felix Forest my goal was to create lived in and inspirational bedrooms to inspire.

What I like best about the beds we selected from King Living is they are all classic designs, that really do work in any space (and you can select from vast range of fabrics). One of the fun parts about working with King on this project is I get to actually choose the fabrics the beds are upholstered in.

Plus I enjoyed working with In The Sac sheets, quilts and pillow cases. All items are 100% pure Belgium linen so their luxurious look combined with an ‘on trend’ colour palette perfectly complimented each bed style.

  1. New York Monotone

This look featuring the slimline Neo bed, with its sleek , simple and low to the ground design.  I kept things tonal and I used lots of shades of grey for this bedroom (bedlinen and upholstery choices). Grey is an easy colour and works with everything and in just about any space, perfect as a foundation. When it came to decorating, I chose more masculine undertones and kept the decoration to a minimum.  Sometimes things in the interiors world can have a slight tendency to be a little more feminine ! I kept things minimal, neat and understated in a classic and timeless style.

    1. New York Luxe

    In this bedroom, we were inspired by New York, but created a feel that could be in London, Paris or LA too. I wanted it to feel chic, injecting colour with the art work and occasional furniture for a lived in luxe feel. Everyone wants a super luxe bedroom so we used the dramatic wingback Symphony bed headboard (how great is this upholstered bed head!)  I love this bedhead its a real statement piece. And, the charcoal quilt adds instant sophistication. How about this green velvet in the occasional chair and cushions that I love too !

    For this bedroom we injected some modern, country feels with some pretty pinks, complemented perfectly by In the Sac’s beautiful Musk linen quilt. Featuring the Promenade Storage Bed – I am obsessed with this natural linen fabric we upholstered the bed in. (I think this is my favourite bed).   The design is simple with no fuss and nice and low to the ground. The look is designed to for a feeling of escape, taking us away from the city for a weekend just like the perfect country getaway!

    This bedroom was all about relaxed coastal vibes – Just my style!  No need to guess my inspiration….. Bondi is my home ! This room is just like me, never far from the sea, lots of crisp white, with tan leather and chambray blues, this chambray Serenade quilted bed head is like your favourite pair of jeans it will go with anything…..consider it a neutral ! And probably my favourite look of the four !

MJG 7 bedroom decorating tips

Winter is here and the bedroom is the perfect place for a little seasonal update. I prefer to keep things simple when decorating a bedroom. Once you have the basics sorted, such as bed, bedside table, storage and lighting its time to get decorating…

Here are my simple tips when decorating in the bedroom especially in winter…

1. inject colour – Add a little or a lot. Im a big fan of introducing colour into the home, currently I’m loving pastel shades of mint or ocean sea foams – updating your bedlinen instantly updates the look and feel of your bedroom – its as simple as that!

2. play with pattern and texture – pattern and texture add visual interest to any room – why not add a statement blanket to add personality to your bed.

3. display – your bed side table is the perfect canvas for a little display – but don’t forget all your essentials. A tray is the perfect answer to contain all your things and makes for the framework for a bedside vignette.

4. add layers – the colder months make for the prefect time to add blankets, cushions and throw practical and easy on the eye too. Layer it up!

5. Keep it personal – Your bedroom should be your sanctuary for rest and relaxation, so surround yourself with things that make you smile, a collection of things that mean something to you. Fresh flowers beside the bed always makes me smile.

6. Splurge – its ok to splurge on quality bed linen (really!) I’m a big fan of natural materials such as cotton and linen, I love how they feel against the skin.

7. Try it on – just as you would when shopping for clothes, check the colour of the bedlinen against your skin – sometimes bed linen is the only thing that you are wearing and it should make you look and feel great!
